(CNN) -- In focus -- Safe Passage

In Iraq, travel is tricky, even on the best of days. But customers of the Duyoof Al-Arabiya Bus company are used to getting the VIP treatment.

MME takes a look at how Duyoof Al-Arabiya ensures passengers a safe, as well as luxurious, journey -- which in Iraq, may be the biggest luxury of all.
